Sun Control Stataion (SCS)
SCS can be used to deploy OS and SW packages for redhat, suse and solaris(sparc/x64) system.
SCS's server need to be linux server
SCS is based on apache/tomcat4 and use perl5 and postgresql and java.
As far as the CLI are concern, most codes are based on perl5 and psql and can be modified for new functionalities
The specific verson of OS are hard-coded into the system, so for new OS's release one new to modify the system code in order to support the new version of OS.
I wish that SUN document the step for system to accomendate the new OS releases.
This blog is an attempt to document the steps for include rhel4 as an supported OS
SCS contains the following modules
- Health Monitoring
- SW installer
By searching through the /scs/lib/perl5 and /scs/lib/sql that conatins 3ASx86_64 or 3AS
we identify the Distro.pm in /scs/lib/perl5 and
need to add rhel4 to as_os , mgmt_build, lom_driver and swinstaller_os tables
and modify the 011_load_builds.pl scripts.
It seems that one also need binary for ipmitool for rhel4 and openipmi for the rhel4's kernel-2.6.9-5
I will report the progress as I finish each test
I am able to create rhel4 as allstart distribution and add payload and profile
ans actually install a managed host.
It will need to be further tested
